[Rseding] [0.17.74] Reactor Entity with electric energy_source shows "not connected to power" icon

Post by altlenny »

1. What did you do?
I created a mod with a new reactor entity.

Code: Select all

    energy_source =
    {
      type = "electric",
      usage_priority = "secondary-input",
      emissions = 0.0,
    }


2. What happened?

Although the entity is connected to an electric network with enough power, it shows the "not connected to power" icon, and doesn't heat up.

3. What did you expect to happen instead?

The entity should draw power from the electric network and start heating up.

4. Additional information:
I had a small conversation with Rseding91 on Discord:
14:39] Rseding91: Make a bug report but I guess whoever let reactors support electric energy sources didn't implement it fully because looking at the code they're just missing the implementation for it.
[14:39] Rseding91: So, you just can't do that for now.

Thanks for the report. It's now fixed for the next version of 0.17.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
